“I Still Do”

Christ Covenant Church – Matthews, NC
March 27-28, 2020

Join us for a special 2020 IBCD Marriage Conference!

Dave Harvey, author of “When Sinners Say ‘I Do'”, introduces his new book, “I Still Do”. This book was written as a guide for post-newlyweds navigating the defining moments of life. Dave joins Jim & Caroline Newheiser and Bob & Ann Maree Goudzwaard to teach sessions designed to apply the word of God to all aspects of our marriages.

He writes, “Lasting marriages are built one defining moment at a time. The moment of blame. The moment of weakness. When your spouse suffers. When dreams disappoint. When the kids leave the nest. It’s how we think and behave toward one another in moments like these that determines whether our marriage endures or falters. Ultimately, these are invitations from God to consider our direction and pursue transformation.”

Whether you find yourself pleased or displeased with the state of your marriage, this conference will offer you encouragement, hope, and practical tools for weathering life’s storms.
